Divarea breaks native context menu

Reported by: Bernhard Frauendienst Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: CKEditor 4.5.4
Component: General Version: 4.0 Beta
Keywords: Cc: scott@…, mark@…


When using the divarea plugin, the native contextmenu no longer works on the content space.

This is caused by the following constellation:

  • disableContextMenu is called on the browser chrome
  • events from the divarea content bubble up to the browser chrome (as opposed to the regular iframe solution)
  • => preventDefault is called on the contextmenu event in most cases, preventing the context menu to show up

One solution could be to modify the disableContextMenu listener function to also check for of event target ancestors with the cke_enable_context_menu class, this would make the handler less performant though. Another solution could be to prevent the contextmenu event from bubbling up the contents space, which is what I have used for now as a workaround.

If you remove editor menu with removePlugins : 'liststyle,tabletools,contextmenu' you will not get anything on right click.

This problem can be reproduced in all browsers, only in divarea (iframe and inline editing work fine) from CKE 4 beta.

The PR isn't unfortunately correct, but I commented with some more details how a patch and its tests could look like.
